The appraisal of the Central Vermont Railway company for taxation in Ver mont was the matter before the state board of appeal at the .State House in Montpelier today, it having been taken up late yesterday afternoon, following the completion of the Newport A. Rich ford case. In this latter-case the road was ap praised at $S40,000, but the state thought it ought to be more. E. A. Cook opened the argument for the state. He urged that the value of the stocks and bonds afforded no proper criterion for the vat nation of this line. As a single road it is of small value. As 1 connecting link in a great system it is of much larger value ihe Connecticut . Pas stimpsic river road owns the Newport & Kieh ford, and the only outlet for ne Canadian Pacific to Boston and adjacent territory is over the track of this rond To be fair, this road must be consid ered as a part of one of the great transportation systems of the country. he said. Judge F. E. Alfred of. Newport In sisted that the greater part of the value of the bonds was due to their be:ng guaranteed by the Connecticut & Pas sumpsie Rivers road, and that this guar anty, which made the bonds marketable should be deducted from the value of the bond. There was no evidence that the stock of the road Mas worth a sinj'e dollar but be was willing to concede that it was worth $10,000. The company received flH.OOO rental per year and pays in Interests on bonds, etc., $17,500. Wrner Graham closed the . argument for the state. This case is considered of much importance, not no much on ac count of the amount involved as in cre ating a precedent for valuing other line forming part of the great system. The appraisal of the Central Ver mont railroad, as made bv former Tat Commissioner C-ushman. wis f9.8.0,OOt), and State Treasurer Deavitt proposed to increase it to $10,601,523.
